these are probably like worst case scenario disclosures. like MAYBE the can MIGHT explode in 115 degree heat. so instead of taking the chance they say not to store in the car. but im sure a lot of people do. i know people that have for years, and i have never heard of any stories.
i would say the same goes for the other one. if you have stock 15 inch rims and tires and you fill your tire up with that stuff, and it doesnt work properly, the general public wont care. but if you have 400 dollar high preformance tires on your ferrari with 21 inch rims that cost 2,000 dollars per rim, and you for some god awful reason you that stuff, and it doesnt work properly, that person is more likely to sue the crap out of Slime company.
Im just speculating here. Im sure someone smarter then I will have better reasoning

That Slime product is similar to the M-Mobility System, right? If it can't be stored in the car, what's the point of getting one then?
Can't be used with high-performance tires? The M3, M5, M6 all are equiped with this kit and their tires most likely are high-performance oriented.

BTW, getting the M-MS for free and also going to get non-RFT tires for the winter.
